?

Add column by column; start from the column on the right.

Add the digits in the ones column:

1 + 3 + 1 + 5 + 5 = 15

How did we add the digits? Explanation below.

Group the ones together in order to make tens:


1 + 3 + 1 + 5 + 5 =


1 + 3 + 1 + 5 + 5 =


1 + 3 + 1 + 10 =


1 + 3 + 1 + 10 =


10 + (1 + 3 + 1) =


10 + 5 =


15


Change the order in which the numbers are added, the sum stays the same.


The sum is a two-digit number: 15.


5 is the ones digit.
Write it down at the base of the ones column.


1 is the tens digit.
Carry it over to the tens column.
Write the digit above that column.
Add it with the rest of the digits in that column.

Answer:
1,021 + 903 + 711 + 325 + 505 = 3,465

The initial operation has become:

- 972 + 1,021 + 903 + 711 + 325 + 505 =


3,465 - 972

Now subtract the final numbers above:
3,465 - 972 = ?

Stack the numbers on top of each other.

The ones digits line up in the first column from the right.

The tens digits line up in the next column to the left.

And so on...


 3465
-  972

?

Subtract column by column; start from the column on the right

Subtract the digits in the ones column:

5 - 2 = 3.
3 is the ones digit.
Write it down at the base of the ones column.


 3465
-  972

    3

Subtract the digits in the tens column:

6 - 7 = ?

The second digit is larger than the first.
Borrow from the next column to the left.

The borrowing is a two step process:


Subtract 1 from the top digit in the column of the hundreds: 4 - 1 = 3.
Cross out the top digit you've borrowed 1 from: 4.
Write the answer above that digit: 3.


When borrowing, 1 hundred = 10 tens.
Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the tens: 10 + 6 = 16.


  3

-  972

    3

After borrowing, the subtraction has become:
16 - 7 = 10 + 6 - 7 = 10 + 6 - 7 = 6 + (10 - 7) = 6 + 3 = 9.
9 is the tens digit.
Write it down at the base of the tens column.

   93

Subtract the digits in the hundreds column:

4 3 - 9 = ?

The second digit is larger than the first.
Borrow from the next column to the left.

Subtract 1 from the top digit in the column of the thousands: 3 - 1 = 2.
Cross out the top digit you've borrowed 1 from: 3.
Write the answer above that digit: 2.


When borrowing, 1 thousand = 10 hundreds.
Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the hundreds: 10 + 3 = 13.


 213  
 34165
-  972

   93

After borrowing, the subtraction has become:
13 - 9 = 10 + 3 - 9 = 10 + 3 - 9 = 3 + (10 - 9) = 3 + 1 = 4.
4 is the hundreds digit.
Write it down at the base of the hundreds column.

Subtract the digits in the thousands column:

There is a single digit in this column: 3 2.
2 is the thousands digit.
Write it down at the base of the thousands column.


 213  
 34165
-  972

 2493

Final answer:
- 972 + 1,021 + 903 + 711 + 325 + 505 = 2,493

?

Subtract column by column; start from the column on the right

Subtract the digits in the ones column:

2 - 7 = ?

The second digit is larger than the first.
Borrow from the next column to the left.

The borrowing is a two step process:


Subtract 1 from the top digit in the column of the tens: 5 - 1 = 4.
Cross out the top digit you've borrowed 1 from: 5.
Write the answer above that digit: 4.


When borrowing, 1 ten = 10 ones.
Add 10 to the top digit in the column of the ones: 10 + 2 = 12.
